The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library also offers the online learning platform Lynda.com to patrons.

Lynda.com has been widely used by government organizations, businesses, and educational institutions to support skills development in staff, students and partners.

Lynda.com can be used by a variety of people with completely different educational goals: Do you want to become more proficient with Microsoft Excel? Do you want to try your hand at 3-D animation with Blender? Have you wanted to build a recording studio in your basement but you don’t know where to start or how to record audio? Would you like your employees to have stronger project management skills?

The courses are self-paced and support individualized learning with beginner to advanced content. Everything is offered on-demand with no limits on the number of courses library patrons can enroll in.

Lynda.com is free to use with a TNRL library card. Just go to www.lynda.com/portal/patron?org+tnrl.ca to try it now or download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store
